It’s finally December, which means Christmas is on it’s way!

Most of us are looking forward to the Christmas season; Eurovision singers apparently as much as the rest of us! We want to share the spirit of advent and Christmas with all of you, with the help of a nice selection of former Eurovision entrants, who all sing (more or less) traditional Christmas tunes.

Today is the first of December, and what makes more sense than kicking off the Xtra Eurovision Advent Calendar with a song that starts with the words…”It’s the first of December”?!

Olivia Newton-John represented the United Kingdom in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton. She performed the song “Long Live Love”, and finished 4th, receiving a total of 14 points.

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
